I know these rifle have been compared but given the current aimpoint promo from LWRC (you got a free T1 w/LRP with a rifle) .... Which would you choose?

I will mostly be shooting inside 500 yards but the ability to stretch out would be a plus when needed ..... Weight is also not a huge deal

Scar 17 ($2650)



LWRC Repr 16" ($3000-$3250 depending on barrel length and options spiral fluting, cerakote etc)


LaRue OBR 16" ($3370)

do you want a battle rifle or a precision rifle? go with 18"+ for .308
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 1:03:28 PM EDT
A UTG cover on a SCAR.  Interesting.
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 1:03:31 PM EDT

Get a used REPR from the EE (Got miney for $2800)

If you want a piston, get the REPR

If you want a gasser, Get a PredatOBR, Knight's ECR, or LMT (I only own a REPR)

S&W M&P-10  
or
DPMS AR-10G2

Anything more expensive than the S&W or DPMS isn't worth the money.

I'd pass on the SCAR for precision.

Well the free aimpoint T1 would probably make me want to get a new one ..... I do like the non reciprocating CH on the REPR as well

i had a 762 lwrc repr...... the one i had was reliable.. but it didnt shoot as well as the ruger sr762, that cost 1/2 as much.  i ended up selling the lwrc, and bought two, sr762 rifles.. and im happy as hell with them.

ruger sr762.

16" barrel.... uses pmags.... reliable... and accurate as fuck... approx $1500.00

i have one and fucking love it.  im not sure about spare parts just yet, i want a spare bcg, and extracters and a few firing pins as well, so i wont need to send the rifle in if i ever have any issues from normal part breakage and such............. im about to try to get a new BCG, and firing pins and things for this. not sure how hard it will be.

if i fucking have to, i will send them the upper and just say i lost the fucking bcg. no clue how hard they will make it getting spare parts. or how expensive... but ill find out soon enough.

5 shots @ 100 yards..... 168g SMK... 38g imr 4895.. lake city brass.






with a 25 round 762 pmag...

The guns you posted are precision guns, banging steel at 500 is overkill.

Are you going to reload, or otherwise buy match ammo?

Indeed they are...... I listed 2 rifles that most would consider a "Precision" gun and one light weight battle rifle

I will be shooting suppressed
I will be shooting steel 99% of the time
I won't go beyond 800-1000 yards (and that distance will be rare)
I mostly shoot within 500 yards
I do like to shoot for groups sometimes
I don't currently on a bolt 308 gun so I would say one of the more precision guns could be the best of both worlds

I am just torn because for what I would do with it there wouldn't be a perfect rifle ..... give some and take some .... or maybe I should just get a Scar 17 and a precision gun

I would stretech it out a few times a year but I am not sure those few times a year would justify it ..... I do not currently reload so I wouldn't be making any loads to custom fit the rifle

Dont hate .... Calling it a "battle rifle" because thats what most people refer to the light weight rifle that shoots .308/7.62

And no it wont ever be going into battle as long as I own it ..... I would rather whimper in my safe room

this would be my pick. 8.5 pounds  with a 14.5 pinned barrel amd slim and trim and probably the best piston design going. I have shot two of their 556 uppers. Very impressed with  how it functioned and the simplicity of it. The reduced felt recoil claim is real.

Having owned a GAP10, M&P10, and SCAR 17.  The SCAR wins it by far for your purposes.  The gap was insanely accurate but heavy and not really maneuverable, the M&P had some issues with cycling standard military ammo, LC m80 and PRVI.

The SCAR has been rock solid with all ammo I've used suppressed and unsuppressed, and I have gotten sub MOA with it.

With that said, I will probably be trading the SCAR in for a Deserttech MDR if it is even close to what they are saying it will be quality-wise.  The one I fondled at SHOT show felt great and would be a great little package for my purposes, and they have a good reputation for accurate rifles.

What he said!

PredatOBR is what you need.
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 2:26:02 PM EDT
OBR in 18" is what you seek.

If purely a battle rifle, then SCAR.  If purely precision, I'm still not sure if the REPR is much more accurate than an OBR.  The answer for your question is undoubtedly OBR.
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 2:28:53 PM EDT
If I didn't just get a bolt gun for 1/4 the cost, and was going to drop the cash on the guns you listed, I'd get the Larue. But I've never owned a Larue gun, so I'm speaking without experience on what I'd buy.

Would that be your main optic?  I'd probably do a low power NF with RMR on scope ring mount.

The MDR is cool but I wouldn't be so hasty trading in the SCAR till the MDR is in widespread use. There is a lot to be said for choosing a weapon that has been through some sort of vetting process.
